Tonttu Series Heaters

For the Tonttu series, Helo teamed up with world-renowned Finnish designer, Ristomatti Ratia. The result is truly innovative - a stunning blend of form and function. Incorporating patented design and using space age insulation technology combined with dramatic rounded forms, it offers new possibilities in sauna room design.
Designed and patented by Helo to provide saunas for today's fast paced lifestyles...saunas always ready when you are, saunas providing the environment desired by sauna users worldwide - lower temperature and higher humidity.
Helo's "Saunatonttu" (sauna elf) heaters are a combination of a thousand years tradition and the best of modern technology.
These magnificent heat-storing heaters allow the sauna bather to enjoy sauna at any time without preheating. Simply open the lid, sit or lie down, sprinkle water on the preheated rocks...and enjoy.
The secret of the Helo heat-storing heaters is in the constant heat retained by the large quantity of rocks (220 lbs.) within the super-insulated heater. Space age insulation technology made this innovation possible - super heater rocks inside, cool surface temperatures outside. The temperature of the rocks is maintained with low wattage elements that can be switched to 100 watt, 200 watts, or 300 watts depending on the amount of heat and steam desired by the user. If more heat is desired or if multiple users will use the sauna, the booster element can be turned on for extra heating power.
Taking the SaunaTime to new heights, Helo and the world-renowned designer, Ristomatti Ratia, createed the ultimate sauna heater - the Saunatonttu (Sauna Elf). Incorporating patented features and superb European design, the Saunatonttu is truly the "Best sauna heater in the world," bar none.

The Tonttu series harmoniously combines form and function. Helo's goal was to create a sauna heater series with stunning design and with technological features that provide luxurious soft heat and soft steam.
Users of the Saunatonttu heater agree it provides the ultimate sauna environment. Now, for those sauna bathers who do not need their heater "always on," the Pikkutonttu (Little Elf) has been added to the Tonttu Series. Instead of being always on, the Pikkutonttu is controlled with the Helo Digi-I, Digi-II, or Digi-VII control and turns on only when activated by the control.
Even though the heater has a huge rock capacity (154 lbs - for soft heat and soft steam), its super-insulated shell keeps sauna heat-up time similar to a traditional sauna heater. With the 24-hour programmability of the Digi controls, users can easily program the control to have the heater hot and ready at a prescribe time.
